Conference: Non-Division I
40 Time: 4.93
Biography: Two-year starter who also saw action with the first-team as a sophomore. Awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his junior season. Led the team in tackles as a senior, posting 72/7/4 after a career-best 113 tackles the prior season.
Positives: Tough, run defending linebacker with a good head for the ball. Remains disciplined with assignments, works hard to pursue the action, and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Immediately locates ball handlers and wraps up tackling.
Negatives: He lacks pursuit speed and best in the box. Ineffective in coverage.
Analysis: Dell was a solid run-stuffing linebacker in college yet possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. He could have a home on the inside of a 3-4 defense if he proves his worth on special teams the summer.
